    according to the sticky at the top of the page, it's being played at 7 pm madrid time, which is in a few minutes @ http://tt.tennis-warehouse.com/showthread.php?p=6516176#post6516176

    but

    I just noticed that it's not part of the TV showing on tennistv.com ... which obviously means we can't see it there and likewise means it won't be shown anywhere live :mad:

    strange. you got the WTA world no. 1 playing her QF ... yet for some reason known only to themselves, they're not gonna cover it

    *sigh*

    silver lining to the cloud: they will be showing youzhny vs. del Potro!!! :oops:

    this is just plain weird. notice how tennistv.com claims "uninterrupted live coverage" ??? theyve already shown one WTA match on center court today, and unless the azarenka/ivanovic match has been canceled for some reason, that one w/b played prior to the federer/raonic match, so why omit covering it????

    This has been without a doubt, the worst coverage of a big WTA event I can remeber in recent years.

    Showing 2 matches a day, which are always early on the schedule, especially as this has the best draw of players outside of AO and Miami this year - its pathetic.

    I not desperate to see Vika but she is number one now and if they can only 'allow' limited airtime on such a prestigious event (prize money and points wise) why is the number one NOT on TV.

    Anyone know how to complain to WTA? Im gonna give Stacey Alister a piece of my mind. She always goes on about what a fantastic 'product' the WTA is. Who cares about the quality if the 'product' is not even available to watch.

    I don't understand it either. Tennistv is showing a summary of the Tsonga match instead. It is not uninterrupted coverage. What a bunch of liars!

    totally pathetic ... according to live scores, the match has been in progress for about 30 minutes, and Vika is up a break, serving for the first set.

    wtf????? she's the frikken world no. 1!!!
    and the staff is out to lunch??????

    :( first set gone. We won't see a point. Good come back by Azarenka after a weak start.

    Absolutely absurd.

    Only Verdasco matches are worth a summary. :)

    GSM Vika 6-4 6-4, choked 2 MP, saved 3 BP, choked another MP with a DF, and finally sealed it on the 4th one.

    Off to watch the mighty Maestro. :D

    So that's what you watch sports for? And I didn't mean to insult the WTA, it's just that I've been waiting for this match since 45 minutes ago (when it was supposed to start)

    Also, they didn't even show the womens match so you're not making much sense..

    huh? there was no set time for it to start. it was scheduled to start after the azarenka match finished.

    there's always a time lapse when a court goes from ATP to WTA and visa versa because they have to take down the nets and change the signage.
